The website for South Lake Union's Block Party today is a bit unclear as to where the festivities take place, but everything is happening in the block across from Whole Foods, behind and around the South Lake Union Discover Center at Westlake & Denny, including the Denny Playfield. You can't miss the white tents. The Cascade Farmers Market will provide an encore today, as well, located in the parking lot area of the block party, not in its regular spot. The small satellite market normally runs on Thursdays, 3:00-7:00 p.m. on Pontius Ave. N. at Thomas.
In addition to a kids' area and food and wine tasting, live music runs from 4:00 p.m. until dusk, including the Cosmic Panther Land Band at 7:45 p.m. (members of Moondoggies and The Maldives). See the full line up HERE. Make sure to get your blankets ready for sunset (9:00 or 9:30 p.m.) and a giant outdoor screening of the Coen Brothers' Raising Arizona. (South Lake Union Block Party, 101 Westlake Ave. N., Friday, August 7th, 12:00noon - 11:00 p.m.)
